King’s Business School is working alongside Disability Rights UK to provide the Secretariat for the All Party Parliamentary Group for Disability. Founded in 1969, the Group brings together members of parliament from both the House of Commons and the House of Lords to focus on the issues that affect all disabled people, regardless of their disability, impairment, or health condition.
The Group provides an opportunity for parliamentarians to engage with individuals and organisations outside parliament on disability-related issues. It currently has 341 members from across the House of Lords and House of Commons and works with over 500 stakeholders in the public, private and charity sectors. The Group draws on the experience and expertise of disabled people to give the disabled community leadership and control of the development of policy.
